Default Maps application doesn't work

Please Login to Remove!

I changed from Storm to Onyx. I notice one thing that the maps application is not working properly, when I "start GPS navigation" it keep on searching for satellites....

anyone can share how to solve this?

thanks a lot everyone....

Do you have a BB data plan?

Do you have "Location Services on"?

What map application are you using?

Do you know if your carrier blocks GPS for other than their own navigation software? Some do.

Are you outside with a clear view of the sky? Can take 20 minutes or so to lock.

I am using the "standard" map application from Onyx
Yes, I have BB data plan
Where can I find the "location service" in the menu?

thanks
